I just entered after getting the RW email this morning.  Quick questions for those who know the race, I did the Three Forts earlier this year and my feet got a real pounding from stones while using road shoes - do I need a pair of trail specific shoes for this one?



i would reccomend trail shoes 

you can wear road but you need some grip its pretty dusty and there are some real big bit of flint out there

I wore Inov8 Terraflys and they were ace

 Are we nearly there yet?

Good luck to you all - I did it last year, and everything else since has been easy.  Maybe it'll be marathon-length this year (I'm only now getting over the despair of reaching mile 26 and finding out there was still a couple more to go...)
